Community Forum - Resiliency after Grief and Loss - Dec 2 at 7pm

On Monday, December 2, Liberty High School will be partnering with Swedish Medical Center to host a forum on “Resiliency after Grief and Loss”. 

This event, from 7:00-9:00pm in the LHS Theater, will be presented by Laura Takacs, LISW, MPH, Director of Clinical Services at the Grief Center at Virginia Mason Hospital.  Ms. Takacs will discuss the process that people go through as they experience grief and loss in their lives, and will present strategies on how we can help one another and ourselves.  This is a free event.  Please join us! 


Advanced Placement Test Fees

If your student signed up for an Advanced Placement (AP) test, the fee(s) have been assessed to your student’s account.  The fee for each test is $94.  If your student decides not to participate in an exam, $40 of the exam fee is non-refundable after Friday, Nov. 15.  If your student would like to add an additional exam, there is a $40 additional fee for any exam added after Friday, Nov. 15.  The exam order will be finalized in early March and at that time no further changes will be possible.  Please use the “Pay Online” system on our website https://web.issaquah.wednet.edu/Touchbase to view and pay this fee by Friday, Dec. 13. 

If you would like additional information about AP testing, such as specific exam dates and times, as well as what to bring on exam day, you can find that information on the LHS AP website:  https://www.issaquah.wednet.edu/libertyhs/academics/assessment/ap-testing


Campus Fencing Project

Starting soon, new fencing will be installed on the east side of the Liberty Campus.  During this project, there will be no parking along the street on 169th Ave SE. We will update with specific dates as we get them.  Once the project is complete, parking will resume as normal.  Thank you in advance for your patience during this time.
